Everyone is familiar with the movie trailer – the short marketing video that groups together snippets from a new film’s various scenes to arouse the curiosity of the public before its release. Ignoring the traditional definition and functionality of the format, the artist Debora Hirsch decided to create some 'posthumous' trailers of the 1931 film Limite. Her reason? Limite, from director Mário Peixoto, is often considered the high-water mark in the history of Brazilian cinema, and yet it was never commercially released.

Hirsch created not one, but three trailers, each using only the original images and sounds of the film, heralding the fictitious upcoming release of the film. One of the trailers incorporates Hollywood style, another introduces the characters and the basic plot of the film and the third focuses on the director and his thematic intentions. Along with the trailers, an exhibition displays three paintings that use the original deteriorated images of the film, also painted by Hirsch.

On 29 July, Limite will be screened at 6pm at the Cinemateca Brasileira cinema as part of a roster of psychoanalysis-related films entitled ’Tradição-Invenção’ (’Tradition-Invention’), followed by a discussion of the work.
